Apply for an immission control permit for the construction and operation of facilities
If you wish to erect and operate a plant which, due to its nature or operation, is particularly likely to cause harmful effects on the environment or otherwise endanger, significantly disadvantage or significantly disturb the general public or the neighborhood, you require a permit from the competent authority. This also includes stationary waste disposal facilities for the storage or treatment of waste.
The approval procedure requires a written application, which must be accompanied by the drawings, explanations and other documents necessary for checking the approval requirements. If the application is complete, it must be published together with the documents, if applicable, and then made available for public inspection for one month. In simplified approval procedures or if public participation is waived, there is no public display and no public hearing. At the latest at the same time as the public announcement of the project, the approval authority simultaneously requests the authorities to be involved to submit their comments on the approval requirements within one month. If there are objections, these will be discussed with you and those who raised the objections at a public meeting. Once the licensing authority has determined all the circumstances that are relevant to the granting of a permit, a decision shall be made on the application. The notice of approval shall be in writing stating the reasons for the decision and shall be served on you and the persons who have raised objections. The delivery of the notice of approval to objectors may be replaced by public announcement.
The operator must obtain approval from the competent authority before erecting and operating the plant.
